Elizabeth Fry Society Simcoe Muskoka

Elizabeth Fry Society Simcoe Muskoka (EFSSM) works with individuals who are criminalized and are experiencing homelessness or are precariously housed. As those we serve are considered some of the most vulnerable in our community, and is a population in which LGBTQ+ individuals are over represented, we felt is necessary to educate employees of EFSSM on barriers and challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals while learning tools to become a more inclusive organization. The training provided through Safer Spaces was interactive and educational for all who attended, resulting in immediate implementation of best practices in daily interactions, policies and procedures.
